REVIEW: Cheeky, The Forum, Peachtree Corners, Norcross, Gwinnett
When a colleague recommended we try Cheeky at the swanky Forum in Peachtree Corners, I knew we had to try it. Admittedly, I’m a fan of contemporary Mexican flair and you don’t have to wave a taco in front of me too many times before I’m prone to snap at it.
We have an intern in the office from Georgia Tech for the summer, so we decided to take him out to lunch. The Forum is just over seven miles from 285 but it’s crowded every time I’m ever gone there.

TIP: Don’t drive through the center of The Forum. Parking is a crazy and it is slow because of the traffic. On the weekends, imagine your worst nightmare. Instead, pull in the front parking areas closer to Peachtree Parkway. There’s ample parking and its just a short walk.
Cheeky has room and lots of it. I can only imagine waiting for a table on some of its busiest days. There is a large outdoor shaded patio area that would be great in the evenings. Inside, there’s a large dining room and a huge bar area. I envision that weekend nights the place must be hopping. It’s very contemporary and upscale, yet casual and welcoming.
Our guest from GT ordered a Cheeky Bowl with chicken that’s basically a salad with rice, black beans, and loaded with cheese. Angel had the House Trio taco combination of steak, carnitas, and fish. I chose the Top Shelf Trio taco combination with the crab cake, cajun shrimp, and the black & bleu. The Black & Bleu is a grilled steak with bleu cheese crumbles. You also have your choice of soft flour tortilla, soft corn tortilla, a hard shelled taco, or a lettuce cup.
Our meal was grand and we were pleased with our selections. Cheeky makes great food and serves it with an awesome vibe. We enjoyed our lunch and look forward to returning. Guten appetit!
